My First Frankens

Here are my first three frankens.
I will try to use them in a mani soon.
Anyone got ideas for names?

Ulta3 Lily White
Ulta3 Midnight
Light Blue Glitter
Dark Blue Glitter
Black Glitter

Ulta3 Clear
Ulta3 Frog Prince
Ulta3 Midnight

Ulta 3 Lily White

Bronze Pigment Powder

This is what I used as far as I can remember.
I also tried clear with orange, aqua, and pink glitters but all the colours on the glitter came off, so it looks dirty.

Royal Nails

Just like lots of others I did a take on nails for the Royal Wedding.
I used BYS Matte Purple and CG 2030 with Konad m65.

Review: Ulta3 Black Plum

Here is Ulta3 Black Plum, $2 from my local pharmacy. Such a great price. And the polish, amazing. I did three coats although that was habit I really only needed 1 and a half.

The pigmentation is amazing and barely any smell at all.

As for the colour. It's exactly a black plum. Lovely deep purple with small red shimmer through it. I highly recommend this to people who love their purples.

Review: Ulta3(NYC) Crazy

Ulta3 (NYC on some bottles) Crazy is an Orange shimmer with a Gold flash. It is quite sheer. I put three thin coats on over a coat of CG White on White and I still have a VNL.
It's a good formula that almost completely fills in mydodgy ring finger ridges. It's a fantastic colour that reminds me of orange cordial that hasn't had water put in it yet. For the price I paid ($2.25) it's a great little orange, as long as a little VNL doesn't phase you

Out of focus to see gold flash

Random Other Manis

Here are other manis I have done recently. No idea on the detail though

Massive Haul Waiting.

Yay. Can't wait to get home tonight. My massive (massive for me anyway, 25 polishes) Ulta 3 haul is waiting for me to pick it up. I'll take some picks and post over the weekend.

Oops, I did it again

Yep. Once again I ate some polish remover. Is anytone else having problems with the drying times of CG Life Preserver and CG Starboard?

But just so I can put up a pic here's and old mani. Inspiration care of Chloe's Nails, where every mani is gorgeous
